I’m head over heels for this adorable pineapple beach body (swimsuit) by Missguided. The quality, colors and fit are great. Not mention the price is affordable at $21. I adore the low back and graphic placement (on the booty) ;) This suit can easily be worn by the pool or throw on some cut off shorts for a daytime festival look! Top the entire look with a retro visor to protect your eyes from the sun! I have a soft spot in my heart for pineapples and anything tropical. Missguided has loads of fun beach bodies in stock. Check them out here…

July’s Artist Of The Month is an amazing budding clothing brand, House Of Aama. When I first came across House Of Aama I was captivated by this picture below and all of it’s chicness…

I knew I had to find out who designed these awesome clothing and share it with all of you! Please read about House Of Aama and see more from their line.

Thank you House Of  Aama for sharing! Enjoy! :)

Who: House of Aama is a culturally inspired lifestyle brand founded in 2012 by Akua Shabaka and Rebecca Henry. The mother and daughter duo desired to fulfill a need to see more of themselves in their personal sartorial expression.  House of Aama was born out of their need to express themselves culturally and hopefully inspire others to manifest their own unique inner expression of self.
House of Aama currently offers a clothing line consisting of original designs, upcycled vintage, vintage and hip hop vintage.  Urban Nomad, is a capsule collection inspired by traditional West and East African design launched in 2014.

Why are you Artist of the Month: I want to show young women that it is possible to achieve a dream and to begin the path of achieving that dream while still young.  House of Aama was born during Akua’s first year of high school with the full support of her mother who also works for herself as a lawyer.  It is important to support young people who have an entrepreneurial spirit and to lead by example.  We have every intent in growing this business and establishing House of Aama as a go to brand for those that are culturally inspired.
What inspires you: House of Aama is inspired by nature and how especially indigenous people adorn and beautify themselves with their natural environment.

Is there anything else that you would like to create/accomplish that you haven’t already: House of Aama would like to expand into home furnishings and linens and eventually open a brick and mortar storefront.
Do have any advice: It is important to surround yourself with positive people who are driven to succeed and who support your goals. Also, running a business involves a lot of trial and error and do not be discouraged by minor bumps in the road. Keep your eye on the prize.

Summer Bouquet

Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been away on vacation and I just had very busy weekend filled with fun festivities! I attended the “On The Run” tour with Beyonce + Jay-z and partied on the roof top overlooking the magnificent City Of New York! Feels good to finally be back to blogging. :) Have a good week!

Outfit deets: top + skirt set from Olive Ole and shoes from Missguided.

See my weekend pics below :)

Follow me on Instagram to keep up on my weekend looks…

Athletic top + Sophisticated bottom

This look was inspired by the athletic influence in women’s wear currently. I love mixing sporty top like this one from Zara with pencil skirts. I love mixing the two looks for a contrasting unexpected outfit. I also tried out a clip- on bang for a different look. Has anyone ever tried this? I love having the option of a bang. Check out “It’s A Wig” clip-on bang.

Queen B below just about sums up the athletic + bun look…

Perfect Perfume

Last weekend I discovered this fab store called Shop Roxx! They have trendy clothing and accessories for a reasonable price! This Summer I’ve been obsessed with the color white. The color white represents Summer for me. White is refreshing and bright! I found this cute white coordinate set (crop top + midi skirt) for $25, darling little perfume earrings and at checkout I noticed this delicious cross body purse in the shape of  a perfume bottle!!! When I discovered this perfume purse my mind was blown! I just fell in love with this store. Definitely check them out here and see their locations here.

The perfume bottle purse trend is taking over. It was first seen on the Chanel runway last Fall 13′ and now it’s trickled down to other designers/stores! From l to r: Chanel, Aldo, Chanel, Charlotte Olympia

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Summer looks like she’s finally here and I’m loving it! I’m going away on vacation this week so I’m going to spoil you with 3 new outfit posts that were inspired by one of my favorite seasons since I won’t be posting next weekend. This quilted dress is from Missguided for under $30! Such a bahgain! I love the high neck, the contrast panels and quilted fabric. The quality of the fabric is great!

I LOVE Missguided!

Btw I keep getting asked about my curly hair and it’s from Hairsisters.com! I’m thinking of doing a few hair tutorials and product reviews for all my different hair-dos? It might be helpful for anyone who likes to change their look like me! :)

Baby Blue

Last week I attended my big sister ‘s wedding and this is what I wore. I had a great time and ate so much! So good… so good… so good! Congratulations to my big sister and brother on their union!

This sassy plunging neckline baby blue dress and shoes are both from Missguided.com. The earrings and bag are from Accessorize.

Now, if you’re thinking about ordering this dress or wear one like it be sure to also purchase the proper undergarments. Wearing proper undergarments are a must for ladies because if you don’t wear proper ones it can KILL your entire ensemble… and I don’t mean it KILL IT in a good way! For this dress I wore a “U” shape bra.”U” shape bras are perfect for plunging necklines like this dress. They give you coverage, lift and keep those babies in place. ;)

You can probably find “U” shape bras in any lingerie section of a dept. store but here is a link…
